“Where’d y’all go?”
“I heard that book they have you read has a wild ending.”
Prayer is the conduit through which power from heaven is brought to earth – O. Hallesby
I got up this morning and was going to spend my quiet time with God. I gathered all of my materials together and I felt Him urging me to pick up the book, “The Power of a Woman’s Words” and read the current chapter, “The Power of a Woman’s Words to God.” As I read the words in this chapter, I felt the tears begin to flow. You see, I am like the mother of the young woman in the beginning of this chapter. I am fervently praying for the Lord to touch my son and bring Him back into the fold.
The opening conversation I shared with you above is actually a text message conversation between my son and me, last night. “I heard that book they have you read had a wild ending.” He knows the ending of the Bible because he has read it. Only I also found out last night that he has a wrong perception of the ending. During a conversation we had face to face, this is how he sees that ending…”Everyone dies.”
“No, Keith, those who believe…LIVE!” The power of my praying words to God is working through Keith’s life. You might not see it through what I am sharing with you here, but as Keith’s momma, who knows his heart, I can see and feel the power of God working in his life. I must not give up or give in…I must put on the armor of God every day and go into battle against the forces of darkness. Because as Billy Sunday is quoted as saying in our current chapter, “All hell cannot tear a boy or girl away from a praying mother.”
And you want to know what is stronger than one praying mother…an army of praying women linking arms together in intercession for the needs of others. The devil cannot win against an army of Godly women praying together…”there is no more powerful way we can use our words than petitioning Almighty God to work on their behalf.”
As I looked back up at the text message from my son…God revealed to me something else about those words. When Jesus comes back there are going to be many people standing here on earth asking that same question; “Where’d y’all go?” I don’t want it to be a member of my family or yours left behind asking that question. Let’s purpose together to intercede on behalf of those loved ones that need the Lord.
Thank You for the hope you provided me this morning. Thank You, also, for the sisters in Christ that You have provided me through these various studies. I know that You will not leave me forsaken or forgotten. You hear the cry of this momma and my prayers will be answered. Jesus, I TRUST in You. In Your name I pray, Amen
